WWII British Paratroops in Action Set B D-Day model kit 1/35Bronco Models
So here is set B, the second of the new WW2 British Paratroopers in Action sets from Bronco Models. Just three fgures included in this one, again all with the characteristic Denison smocks to paint. Multi-part figures in a style that is commonly used for plastic figures in 1/35, with the the body broken down into separate legs, arms, torso and head which in turn helps open them up for conversion potential.
The equipment they are accompanied by help give the focus and a story to this one. There are two examples of the small folding motorbike, the Welbike, along with their air-drop containers. these are small and very detailed, with etch brass used for detailing on items such as the spokes for the wheels and the drive chains among other things. One of the figures is a rider for one of the Welbikes opened up, while another in kneeling beside the container it was dropped in, as he is lifting out a folded bike. The third and final figure is featured pushing one of the hand trollies developed for British Airborne forces, and this is carrying ammunition containers to accompany a very nicely done PIAT launcher. The detail on the items of equipment is delightful, and the three new figures nicely done to go with them. There are also some transfers with this one, including not only unit and rank badges for the figures, but also the stencil markings for the Welbike air-drop containers.
